Cranberry Bogs |7 Wonders of Fall
The fields are composed of sand and peat, and on their own wouldn’t interest most people–but when the berries ripen on the vines, the landscape is flooded till a sea of crimson spreads across it, and the harvest begins. Wherever the eye looks–heading west from Plymouth, Massachusetts, say, down Seven Hills Road and out Federal Furnace Road, or along Routes 106 and 44, or south on 58, through Carver, Wareham, and Middleborough, through Kingston, Plympton, and Halifax–it’s a sight to remember.
A number of farmers welcome visitors, and some even let you close to the bogs. Many will pause in their work–as generations before them have–to talk bogs and berries.
